string(100) "/var/www/vhosts/" Jamie Oliver's eggy crumpets, Egg recipe

I saw Jamie Oliver make these on either a Christmas special or the Jamie at home series. I've always loved egg-bread, always put chilli flakes in it, often have it with bacon and I love crumpets, yet it's taken Jamie to work out how to combine the lot into one superb breakfast meal.

Best recipe review

Great idea


Even though it riles me to promote anything from this media-seeking P.I.T.A.


Little and large - the Tefal one egg wonder 12 cm mini frying pan is great for single crumpets!

  1. Crack the eggs onto a shallow dish
  2. Sprinkle the chilli flakes over the eggs, season with salt and pepper. Finish with a shake of hot pepper sauce and whisk well with a fork
  3. Heat a frying pan with a little olive oil and fry the bacon until it's crispy. The benefit of using good home smoked bacon or pancetta is that it has an extremely low water content and it won't fill the pan with liquid
  4. Soak the crumpets in the egg mixture, turning a few times to get as much egg soaked up as you can
  5. Using the nice bacon flavoured oil, in the same pan, cook the crumpets for 3 minutes a side. Pour any extra egg over the crumpets, that way you don't waste any chilli!

Serving suggestions

Serve topped with crispy bacon surrounded by brown sauce


I seem to recall that Jamie also suggested serving with maple syrup. Well, you're welcome to try that. Not while there's a single drop of Daddies sauce left on this planet!
